Child care agency seeking relatives of woman deemed unfit to care for baby
Officers from the Child Care & Protection Agency (CCPA) in Region Five are trying to locate the relatives of a 23-year-old woman who has been deemed unfit to care for her three-month-old baby.
The woman, Abiola Yakene France who said she is from Sophia, Georgetown had taken the baby to the Fort Wellington Hospital (FWH) last Friday to be treated for a severe rash about the body.
She subsequently visited the probation department to meet someone and during her conversation she related that a relative of the baby boy “bathed him with trench water…”
Based on further questioning from the officers they decided to take her and the baby into their care.
They were kept at the FWH until Monday night and on Tuesday the CCPA officer placed the baby into the care of a resident.
